Chicken Sausage Mini Pretzel Dogs

A favorite for all ages - get your baking fix and make these as a party appetizer or a fun family dinner.

  1. Preheat oven to 375F.
  2. Cut each sausage into 3 equal pieces so that you have 12 pieces total.
  3. In a large bowl mix together the greek yogurt and flour. Stir until the dough is well combined and formed into a ball.
  4. Using the reserved flour, lightly flour a work surface and turn the dough out onto it. Knead until the dough is a nice, smooth ball. Add a little additional flour if dough is too sticky.
  5. Divide dough ball into 4 equal pieces. Now divide each of those pieces into 3 equal pieces. You should have 12 small pieces of dough.
  6. Dusting with a little flour as needed, roll one piece of dough between your hands until it is a smooth ball. Roll back and forth to turn the ball into an elongated piece that is about 3-4 inches long, enough to wrap around the sausage. Lay the piece down and gently flatten it until it resembles a flat oval.
  7. Wrap the piece of dough around one of the sausage pieces, pinching at the seem.
  8. Place the wrapped sausage seam-side down onto a sprayed baking sheet. Repeat with remaining dough and sausage until you have 12 pieces.
  9. Brush the top of each piece with the egg, making sure to coat all of the dough. Generously sprinkle the top with salt.
  10. Bake for 15-17 minutes, checking the bottoms to make sure they aren't getting too brown, until the dough is fully cooked and golden brown. (Note: you can broil the tops for the last 1-2 minutes to help them brown if needed). Enjoy!

If you want to make these in advance for a party I would wrap the sausage with the dough and keep in the refrigerator until ready to bake. Place on a sprayed baking sheet and add the egg wash and salt just before baking.
